Sketch Tease and The Art of the Pin Up

Although it has been a slow couple of weeks in lazy Larryville, there are events happening tonight that are worth attending!

Sketch Tease will allow artists to draw at models in costume from 7:00-10:00 tonight.  It will be held at Atomic Photography.  cost: $5.00. 
Bring Drawing supplies. 
Here is what the invite says: It's an evening of lovely ladies, furious sketching, chatting, music, plus a little food & drink to keep the natives from getting restless.

Scarlot Harlot and Lavone Mystere will be your models for the evening! Plan on attending?

Bring your own art supplies and drawing/painting surfaces! Nothing too unwieldy, but if you have a drawing board or collapsible easel, bring it along! Maybe you just draw on an ipad? It's up to you!

Photographers bring your cameras! Just be aware of the lighting and that will be no flash. 

Here is there Facebook Invite:


Stop by the 4th annual Dime Bag Show tonight at from 6-9 p.m at the Percolator.  In this show, artists make a work of art from stuff ( junk?) found at the Social Service League.
All proceeds from this show go toward the Percololator.

The Art of the Pin Up

Although originally in monthly male magazines such as Esquire in the 1940's, 1950's and 1960's,  pin-up art is becoming more reputable.  The spencer Museum has a collection of Vargus originals, and pin-up art is seeing its way into international auction houses.  Here are examples of pin-up paintings from two notable pin-up artists.
